Fully Stripped and Rebuilt, new cables, grease and bearings throughout.
Wheels TT, Chainset stripped and Cleaned, new chain.
This Raleigh Clubman is much the same Specification as the one listed here, exception being the wheelset:
http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/Raleigh83/ral83_09.jpg

We are unsure if This Raleigh Clubman is from 1983 through.
Here's the specification and Sizing:
531 Frame
Mavic module E Rims on unknown hubs 27 x 1 1/4, possibly Maillard or similar large Flange hubs.
WEINEMMAN Raleigh Canti brakes F&R model 610
Raleigh Crankset, New KMC Chain
Campagnolo Down Tube Shifters with Campagnolo front and Rear Mechs
ST 60cm CTT
TT 57cm CTC
We built this bike for a "customer" but despite various efforts from us to get in touch they have not responded.
Enough time has passed now for us to sell this elsewhere.
For the time being the cycle will only be listed here and for sale from the ATC in Hebden Bridge.
Price £350. But feel free to make an offer if you wish. :)

We will put pedals of your choice on: SPD, KEO Look, Flats with Clips. (recycled not new)
Bar Taping will be done after you try the bike to ensure brake levers are set correctly for you.

Now all the Blurb is outta the way, here's the pictures:

Lastly if you want the bike shipped somewhere we can potentially do this but there will be an extra charge, or you can arrange your own courier.

Well, there's been over 200 views and no replies so are we perhaps pricing this too high?

Thanks

A picture on the thread always helps, but those pictures are huge as I just found out!

But yes priced too high to make a sale in my humble opinion.

Also I appreciate where you're coming from with the bar tape thing but it is probably best to set them in the standard position and tape the bars for maximum visual effect.

Thanks for that information. Will discuss and potentially reduce the price later.

I know what you mean about Bar Tape, but always think it's best to wait until folk try the cycle out.

Lastly I have set camera to high res and used dropbox as I think that's better then posting low res images but I may bang one up here too.

here's a low res picture to perhaps entice people.
The price is negotiable

A couple of years ago I sold one of these. It was as new, Factory fresh, I don't think it had ever been ridden. It even had the original factory packing on the rear of the frame. I sold it for £150 and it was on sale for a few days. It has since been sold on again for the same price.
I sold another nice one on e-bay and it reached £138 so yes your pricing is a bit out.
You may be better e-baying it as sometimes they can go a bit crazy.
Good luck with the sale. Jim

Is the ATC the place down by the canalside, behind the Co-op? Are you going to be open this Sunday at all?

It is indeed the very same. We don't open on Sundays but we do open on Saturdays, 12-4pm

If you can't get down tomorrow then I could possibly get some keys and meet you there on Sunday if you'll definately be there??

Thanks

Thanks for that, V Helpful. Just confirm the one(s) you sold had Campag parts too?

Yes they were campag DTs and front mech, can't remember about rear mech as I think some were Suntour. The factory fresh one also had the gold coloured mudguards.
I'd definately tape those bars up before offering for sale. They are a really nice bike, although its only the main frame as far as I am aware that is 531.
